BAD DAD is the Christmas UK Number One!


You know we told you that Christmas was going to be BIG for David Walliams? (He’s on TV twice this Christmas with his TV adaptations of Grandpa’s Great Escape and Ratburger.)

Well what we didn’t know then was that it was going to be EVEN BIGGER than that!

We’re excited to tell you. We’re even MORE EXCITED than excited. There isn’t a word for it. David Walliams will have to invent one.

We’re jumping up and doing a Raj-style dance! Because …

David Walliams’ latest novel, BAD DAD, has just been crowned the CHRISTMAS UK NUMBER ONE!

That means it’s the bestselling book in the whole of the UK this Christmas.

That’s A LOT of books. The UK is a pretty big place.

That’s a lot of people reading about fast-paced car chases, evil villains, and Frank and his dad.

That’s a lot of people being introduced to Fingers and Thumbs, Mr Big and Auntie Flip.

Thanks to everyone who has bought BAD DAD, read BAD DAD and told your friends about BAD DAD!

Grab your party hats. Grab your friends. Let’s celebrate!
